This morning I was wondering whether I should have booked time off to play Rise Of Iron, the new Destiny expansion. Watching Twitter I'm currently glad I didn't because the servers appear to have completely fallen over, an army of error codes followed by a queuing system which has placed my partner (who did take the day off) about 100,000th in line to play.
